Agent's Take: The NFL's most leveraged contract and what it means for the 2021 NFL Draft - CBS Sports

The second restructure occurred in December 2019 right before the end of the regular season as $12.5 million of Ryan's 2020 base salary was turned into an option bonus where his 2023 contract year became an option year that was picked up the following March.

This maneuver cleared $9.375 million of 2020 cap space while raising Ryan's 2021 through 2023 cap numbers each by $3.125 million.

A third salary conversion was done in March 2020 as $6.95 million of Ryan's 2020 base salary was converted into a signing bonus.

His 2021 through 2023 cap number each increased by $1,737,500.

This made Ryan's 2021 cap number $40,912,500, which was the second largest in the NFL only behind Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's $41.25 million.

Ryan's 2021 cap number had become the largest in the NFL because Roethlisberger renegotiated his contract.

Twenty-one million of Ryan's 2021 base salary became a fully guaranteed roster bonus to give the Falcons $14 million of immediate cap relief.

Ryan's 2022 and 2023 cap numbers jumped by $7 million each to become $48,662,500 and $43,612,500, respectively.

There's now more bonus proration ($24,912,500) in Ryan's 2022 cap number than salary ($23.75 million).

Prior to the Falcons playing the restructure game with Ryan's contract, his original 2022 and 2023 cap numbers were $36.8 million and $31.75 million.

The Falcons would have a $40.525 million cap hit for trading Ryan in 2022, which would create $8,137,500 of 2022 cap room.

In turn, $43,912,500 2023 cap space would be freed up with the acquiring team taking on Ryan's $28 million 2023 salary in a trade and his $15,912,500 of 2023 bonus proration becoming a Falcons 2022 cap charge.

The $40.525 million would be the NFL's third-largest cap hit for 2022.

A trade next year is further complicated by Ryan having a $7.5 million third day of the 2022 league year roster bonus due mid-to-late March.

This $7.5 million becoming a Falcons financial obligation would make delaying a trade until June 2, when the $15,912,500 of 2023 bonus proration wouldn't accelerate onto Atlanta's 2022 salary cap, less of a realistic possibility.
